Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders offered an unabashed defence of their progressive policies during a Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, as their more moderate rivals criticized their proposals as unrealistic and politically untenable.
Moderator and CNN anchor Jake Tapper got some buzz for posing questions to the candidates some viewed as combative. In Biden's absence, Buttigieg will be the token moderate on stage and can be sure to be asked about his embrace of big dollar donors.

"So that's why I said Biden won because he's in the middle".
'You don't know that, ' Ryan interjected. But can climate change give one candidate an edge over the other?
